Here’s the 12th episode of MAKE‘s podcast, Make: Talk!

Our maker interview this week is with Ayah Bdeir, the founder and lead engineer of littleBits, an open source library of electronic modules that snap together with magnets, making it fun and easy to build interactive electronic projects.

I met Ayah at the TED2012 conference last month, where she was awarded a TED Fellowship for littleBits. You can watch my video interview with Ayah at TED here, and you can also watch Ayah’s TED presentation here.

And in this episode of Make: Talk, Ayah has a big announcement: littleBits has just launched its new littleBits Community, a website where people can share their creations. I’m looking forward to seeing the different projects people make with littleBits.

Ayah and littleBits will be at Maker Faire in San Mateo, California on May 19 and 20, and she’ll also be presenting at Make’s first Hardware Innovation Workshop in Palo Alto, California on May 15 and 16.
